2nd Batch from Joy Sneak Peak

Here is another sneak peak video. This is my 2nd batch from Joy which includes the Navy Balenciaga w/Gold Hardware and the White Multicolor Annie MM.

This is actually part of the order I received last week but it was split into 2 shipments. I will follow this with a thorough written review when I have time but I wanted to give you my initial thoughts.

I plan to visit Louis Vuitton sometime this week or over the weekend to check out the Multicolor Annie in person and see how it is supposed to look and feel because the one in this video seems a little off to me.

Of course there is a very good chance I am wrong since I've never researched this line before. I've always thought the multicolor line was a little too colorful for me and just gives me the impression of elementary crayons lol.

I do not feel comfortable giving this bag a rating since I don't know anything about it. So I think the best thing to do is to go see it in person. I plan to take a good long look at it and feel the actual material so I'd know whether or not the replica I received is a good copy.

Let me know your thoughts guys!

  1. Hi, I really really enjoy your blog. :) Thanks for sharing. I am not sure, but it looks like the Annie may be a little off on the sides, as most in the multicolor line will match up the symbols along the stitching on the sides. My guess is because where the monogram canvas line could be a little off when it comes to side stitching, the multicolor line is a little more noticeable because of the vibrant colors. I have a black multicolor that does the same thing and it drives me crazy because i have yet to see an authentic that is not lined up. Also, i couldn't really tell but it looked like some of the colors were a little faint? This could be because of the camera, but i think certain colors were a little hard to see. My local LV does not normally have a lot of multicolor bags onhand, so I use this link to test my multicolor bag. Point #6 lays out the color scheme for both black and white. This is just being offered since you said you are not very familiar with these particular LVs. I hope this helps!! :)

    1. Thank you sweetie! I will call my local LV ahead of time to make sure they have this bag in stock before I go but I will definitely check it out thoroughly so I can give an accurate rating but even with the limited knowledge I have of this line I feel that there is definitely something off. I would order it and compare it in person however, I've already returned one item recently so I don't want them to block me from making future returns LOL. And thanks for the link, I'll check it out when I get a moment :).

  2. Hey Sarah! Ok, so question. This balenciaga, is this the lower price point one? How much was it? Do you have the link to this exact bag? I want to compare to the one i am considering. Thanks!

  3. nevermind! saw in your video about the price! LOVE your feedback that the pricepoint is not worth it by comparison! As usual, you are a gem!! Please update when you know it's the right bag from her!
    I am going to order from wanlongruihe on ebay that Maja ordered from. Her's was the classic, i want their Giant City 21.
    I'll do a review when i get it!!
    On the fence between this and joys, but wanlongruihe is less expensive given Joy's western Union fee.
    Here is the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271039109399?var=570108339116&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2648

  4. Sarah, how would you compare the quality of this Balenciaga bag to the one you got from New Bag Factory? Do you think the one from NBF is better quality? I know the ones from Joy have Lampo zippers but not sure about the NBF bags.

    1. The one from NBF is by far the best quality! Even better than the authentic bag which I reviewed in a side by side comparison. I absolutely LOVE the leather on the one from NBF. I'm happy with the ones I got from Joy as well but a little disappointed that the lower price point and the higher price point feel to be the same quality. It was $100 difference so I really expected it to be at least a little better but from what I saw and felt I would stick to the lower price point.

      I sent Joy an email earlier today asking if perhaps she sent me the wrong bag. I will update you all on what she says. If the correct bag was sent than I will definitely stick to the low price point in the future.

    2. Yea, I'm curious if she did send you the wrong bag so I look forward to finding out. I've been considering some Bals from Joy but may try out NBF. I have been wanting a navy blue Bal just like the one you got and would even offer to buy it from you too but I prefer silver or rose gold hardware:-)

      Great blog and thanks for all the time you put into it!
